Windows insider preview 19018

As normal, the updates do take time to download and install. Some updates are quick but like this one it took about 1 hour to download and then another 1.5 hours to install.

In this build, there were only a hand full of updates from the Microsoft Store. Since build 19013, the store has been pretty quick.

I have not noticed anything out the ordinary, Search, outlook, other office apps and games all working fine.

I had an issue on build 19013 where outlook would stay open in task manager even though it has been closed.

My machine also just rebooted on its own in build 19018, no bug check or anything like that.

Office professional plus 2019 updates still failing, this has been for the last 4 builds.

Flash files seemed to launch on build 19013 but not on this build. IE and Edge the only 2x browsers that open it but fail to do anything else.

Other than that, fans on my machine calmer than before. No issues encountered so far but will continue testing.

Happy updating.
